6 Thoughts on the First Season of Runaways

I am super late with this review listicle for the first season of the Runaways TV show. Not only did the show end several weeks ago, I also finished watching it a couple weeks ago. So apologies on the lateness of this review! Runaways was a fun show and I’m excited for season 2.


TV Rating: 7/10 – Good.

I thought the cast of the characters was excellent and the special effects were not bad at all for a TV show on Hulu. It mostly captured the spirit of the comics and is a fine addition to the superhero TV lineup. The dinosaur was especially fun!

Join me after the jump for my thoughts on the first season of Runaways! Expect full SPOILERS for both the show and the comic!

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 2/10/18

Here we go again! Last week, I complained that there were too few comics released that I read and review. This week apparently makes up for that deficit! We’ve got Spider-Man, we’ve got Hawkeye, we’ve got Iceman, we’ve got so dang many comics! Including the debut of X-Men Red!

Comic Book of the Week goes to the new issue of Runaways! It’s a delightful issue capping off the first storyline. And just in time for me to finish the Runaways TV show, which I also enjoyed.

Mr. Twinkles! You traitor!

I’ll talk more about the Runaways TV show in a couple weeks. For now, I liked it and am looking forward to a second season.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 1/13/18

It’s that time of year again! I’ve got another cold! If I were a better adult, I’d figure out what might be the root cause of the cold and make better preparations to stop it. But eh, that sounds like a lot of work. I’ll just keep popping cold medicine.

In better news, we’ve got a ton of nifty comics this week! Some of my favorite non-cancelled comics are in this week, like Ms. Marvel and Unbeatable Squirrel Girl! We’ve also got another super cool issue of Mister Miracle. But I’m going to award Comic Book of the Week to the final issue of the Conner/Palmiotti Harley Quinn, even though I don’t think it’s as strong of a finale as it could have been.

So say we all!

Still, I have greatly enjoyed their entire Harley Quinn run, and this is coming from a comic fan who never particularly cared about Harley. I never read her comic until this pair launched her new series during the New 52, and whatever the haters may say, this is always going to be my Harley! Here’s hoping the new team can keep the quality going.

All the best, Amanda and Jimmy!

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 12/16/17

Happy Star Wars weekend, everybody! Have you seen The Last Jedi yet? That seems to be the big how-do-you-do around here. I saw it a couple nights ago and enjoyed it, though I have plenty of reservations and nitpicks. I’ll share everything on Wednesday!

For now, how about some enjoyable comics? A lot of my favorites came out this week, from Detective Comics to Unbeatable Squirrel Girl! But, and kind of against my better judgement, I’m going to give Comic Book of the Week to Mister Miracle #5. This comic is such a mind-blower! But damn if it doesn’t get me thinking and enjoying good comics.

Decisions, decisions

I missed reviews last week because I was out-of-state on an awesome vacation. And it’s a real shame, because there were some excellent issues of some of my favorite comics! Both Hawkeye and Iceman were great, as usual, but holy cow, I missed a great issue of Batman! I thought the last few issues starring Catwoman were already amazing, but Tom King’s take on Batman and Superman was mind-blowingly amazing! The issue would have been a perfect 10/10 it was just so much fun to read!

Comic Reviews: Detective Comics #970, Mister Miracle #5, Runaways #4 and Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #27.

We’re less than a week away from the Justice League movie! Will it be terrible? Can a third weekend of Thor: Ragnarok defeat it at the box office? I kind of hope so! To celebrate, lets read some Batman, Mister Miracle, Ms. Marvel and Runaways comics!

Comic Book of the Week goes to the latest issue of Harley Quinn! The creative team really delivers a stunning cliffhanger to take us into the final issues. It’s exactly what this comic needed!

So are they all stacked up on top of each other?

I also highly recommend checking out this week’s issue of Unbeatable Squirrel Girl! I didn’t review the issue because it’s a smattering of short vignettes, possibly done to raise money for a charity? It’s hard to tell, but the stories are delightful!

Comic Review: Detective Comics #968, Harley Quinn #31, Mister Miracle #4, Ms. Marvel #24 and Runaways #3.
